What Happens if I Do Nothing?
Missing teeth, whether they are visible in your smile or not, should never be ignored. Even one gap in the mouth can lead to bone loss that causes the surrounding teeth to shift, which can throw off how the entire bite comes together. This can cause excessive tooth wear, chronic jaw pain, and eventually—more tooth loss! Research shows that a tooth is 20% more likely to be lost when the one next to it is missing, but patients can improve their odds and prevent this from happening by quickly replacing any absent members of their smile!
A single replacement tooth, or even up to three connected to one another, can be placed into a space in the smile, and these will be supported by dental crowns fitted over the remaining teeth on either side. Our bridges are designed to look just like the teeth surrounding them, and they can fully restore a patient’s ability to chew normally again. Plus, they can prevent the neighboring teeth from shifting like we touched on above.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you’re missing several teeth, the right denture can bring them all back at the same time, making it much easier to speak and eat like you used to. Partial dentures are specially shaped to fit between any remaining healthy teeth, while a full denture is placed directly on the gums to bring back an entire row. At Sebastian Dental, patients can get a traditional removable denture, or they can enjoy the most secure fit possible with an implant-retained denture.
While other tooth replacements only bring back the part of the tooth you can see, dental implants actually restore an entire tooth from root to crown. A small titanium post is placed into the jawbone, and this acts as the support for a new crown, bridge, or denture. Right now, implants are the closest thing to natural teeth when it comes to appearance, strength, and longevity, and they enable patients to feel like they actually have their real teeth back.
